DesignerCon 2012: Sawdust Bear

3:00 PM on 11.11.2012 // Natalie Kipper

No sawdust or bears but tons of colorful works of art!

Sawdust Bear's booth at DesignerCon was a colorful world of bizarre creatures set against a backdrop of wooden displays (no sawdust, though). The artist behind Sawdust Bear, Shing Yin Khor, was in attendance and very fun to talk to. Shing had a variety of her fattybugs for sale, some were even clear, colored versions. The little squids nailed to boards were tragically cute (something very difficult to pull off). One of the critters on display was actually an artist collaboration between Shing and Josh "fplus" Pearce. The piece in question was a turquoise monster with crystals in its back. I loved the little ghost pins that Shing had made, each with a slightly different expression. They were all so darling! Postcards of the Shing's darling creations were also available for purchase.

Sharing Sawdust Bear's booth was T.R. Prater of Karlyl's Creations. The artist's ball-jointed dolls on display were very cool and trendy. They sort of reminded me of Japanese rocker style outfits. Also at the booth was a work-in-progress model of a custom ball-jointed doll called "The Gargoyle." It was most impressive. 

Take a look at the gallery to see what Sawdust Bear's booth had to offer at DesignerCon 2012!
